Football: CAN'T MAKE MANY MOORE MISTAKES; FOOTBALL LEAGUE: Derry V Laois, Tomorrow, 2.30 Kearns: Derry Isn't Make or Break but It Is Important


Byline: By PAT NOLAN

TOMORROW'S Division 1B clash between Derry and Laois may be delicately poised but O'Moore boss Liam Kearns doesn't see it as make-or-break.

Laois have already dropped points in an opening day defeat to Westmeath and a fortunate draw with Louth but Kearns doesn't place the last three games in the must-win category.

"I wouldn't quite go that far," he said.

"If we win two of our last three matches, we end up on nine points. I would think 10 points would certainly qualify for the semi-final so if we lose to Derry we would have to win the last two I would think.

"You can see that there's five teams covered by two points between four and six.

"Having said that, in this division last year it was the same thing.

Galway qualified for the semi-final with nine points so I think it will be similar this year.

"Whether that has anything to do with the restructuring of the league on top of everything else, I don't know, but that's been the reality if this particular division for the past number of years."

Laois have been a mixed bag in the league so far. They were hotly fancied to account for an injury-hit Westmeath side on the opening day and were turned over.

They then pulled off an ugly one-point win over Galway before scraping a draw against Louth. Their most recent outing saw them leave Down with a seven-point win but the Mourne men appear to be well off the pace at the minute.

Derry have also mixed the good with the bad. A comfortable win in Galway was followed by a surprise home reverse to Westmeath.

They then lost to Kildare before a highly impressive win against Armagh two weeks ago.

"They had a great win against Armagh," stated Kearns.
